Your 2017 Guide to Delaware's Summer Camps

Eco-aware summer camps help kids fall in love with nature.


Published:

For Jon Wickert, it wasn’t love at first sight. He went to the local park as a kid, fished a few ponds, walked some trails, but nature didn’t capture his young imagination. Wickert’s attention was occupied by sports. Not until college did Wickert come to appreciate animals, trees, flowers, waterways and ecosystems. He found that passion by working at summer camp in Maryland. It changed Wickert’s life. “I wouldn’t be where I am without that camp experience,” he said.

In some ways, Wickert is still in camp. As chief of interpretation for Delaware State Parks, Wickert oversees more than 130 summer camps at eight parks and the Brandywine Zoo. His job is to “interpret” nature—its science, challenges and beauty—to visitors, including campers.

“The goal first and foremost is for these kids to have memorable, meaningful and fun relationships with nature,” Wickert says. “We can all reach back and touch a powerful summer camp memory and think about how it formed us. At Delaware State Parks, we’re laying the groundwork for that.”

A similar mission informs Delaware Nature Society’s camps, run in eight locations, including DuPont Environmental Education Center and Granogue Estate in Wilmington, Bucktoe Creek Preserve in Avondale, Ashland Nature Center in Hockessin and Abbott’s Mill Nature Center in Milford. Helen Fischel, director of education and organizational development, says that Delaware Nature Society makes “lifelong investments in children so they make lifelong investments in nature.” That is especially important given the technologically mediated nature of so many experiences among kids today. “I love technology, but too many kids are too sedentary,” Fischel says. “If kids learn to appreciate the outdoors, they’ll take an interest in caring for it. We really need younger generations to fall in love with nature.”

While those are the long-term goals, the short-term goal is for kids to learn, explore and get really, really dirty. A great way to do that: Delaware Museum of Natural History’s camps, which serve kids from pre-K through sixth grade. New this summer is Tough Museum Camp for students from grades 3 through 6. Part boot camp, part Olympics, the camp includes field games, an extreme obstacle course and self-defense training. “We’re talking old-school camp activities,” says Cathy Perrotto, scout and camp coordinator at the Delaware Museum of Natural History. “Those kids are going to get dirty, get tired and have a great time.”

Wilderness Explorers is one of the museum’s most popular programs for 3rd- to 6th-graders. Campers embark on a series of adventures in the woods, meadows and wetlands adjacent to the museum. There is no Google Maps for these kids. They make their own using compasses and orienteering skills. “We’re not sitting inside looking at computer screens,” Perrotto says. “Getting messy is half the fun of camp.”

Map making plays a pivotal role in many of the Delaware State Parks camps. Kids 7-15 learn to build shelters, track animals and make fires. Campers need those skills and others at the “Survivor”-style camps at Brandywine Creek State Park in Wilmington, Lums Pond State Park in Bear and Killens Pond in Felton. Kids ages 8-12 learn to purify drinking water, build fires and create primitive shelters. At Killens Pond, older kids (12-15) can spend the night in those shelters. “How cool is it to build a fort and spend the night in it—inside a state park?” Wickert says. “Of course, we have real tents on hand in case something goes wrong.”

Cape Henlopen in Lewes has a similar camp, Operation Fort Miles. Kids ages 10-12 learn to create codes and break them, use a compass and camouflage themselves as they go on rescue missions. Wickert reports a rise in requests for such “extreme” summer camps. “There’s a big increase in kids who want to go rock climbing, which is the focus of Alapocas Run State Park, and white water rafting, which we do in trips to Pennsylvania.” 

Water sports play a huge role in camps at state parks. Canoeing and kayaking are also popular at Delaware Nature Society’s camps. While fish and frogs make aquaculture fun at Abbott’s Mill and DEEC, cows, sheep, pigs and chickens are the main attractions of Delaware Nature Society’s programs at Coverdale Farms in Greenville. “Kids love animals but don’t have opportunities to feed them and clean up after them,” Fischel says, “which is fun if you don’t have to do it every day.”

Kids interested in more exotic animals head to the Brandywine Zoo’s camps. Junior Zookeeper Basics (ages 8-10), one of the zoo’s most popular camps, will be expanded this summer to meet demand. Through the program, kids get hands-on experience in caring for mammals, reptiles and insects, says Melody Whitaker, the zoo’s assistant curator of education. “Many kids think that all you do is play with animals and that’s not true,” she says. “Zookeepers create diets, monitor animal behavior, design exhibits and do a lot of maintenance. Campers learn about those tasks, then put their knowledge to use by shadowing staff members.”

Kids can build on those skills at the zoo’s new camp: Animal Handling. Kids 14 and older learn how to hold tarantulas, transport bearded dragons and present rainbow boa constrictors for the zoo’s shows. The goal is not only to educate kids but to encourage them to become zoo volunteers. “Even if they don’t volunteer, we hope to foster an appreciation of conservation and wildlife,” Whitaker says.

Younger kids (ages 6-10) can learn animal basics at zoo camps like We Like to Move It! and Food Chains, Poo and Bugs, Too! “Hey, it’s part of nature,” Whitaker says with a laugh. “You’d be surprised how fascinated kids are by animals’ bodily functions.”

Animal education is an important part of camps at the Delaware Museum of Natural History. In its Most Extreme Camp, 1st- and 2nd-graders learn about the fastest animals (cheetahs), the strangest-looking animals (tusked, horned and antlered mammals), those that live in the hottest environment (lizards) and the coldest (polar bears). And don’t underestimate bees. They are smarter than humans believe them to be. “Bees communicate by dancing,” Perrotto says. “Kids learn the bee waggle dance, come up with their own code and communicate with other camps. They have to do it in the dance code of the bees.”

Storytelling is another big way that experts inspire kids to learn about nature. Brandywine Zoo has Tales of Tails for 5- to 10-year-olds and, for kids ages 6-10, Fantastic Beasts and How to Care for Them, named for the book by J.K. Rowling. Delaware Nature Society offers Wizards & Lizards, its Harry Potter-inspired camp for 9- to 12-year-olds. When the Potter series ended, Fischel and her colleagues announced that Wizards & Lizards would also end. Fifty kids signed a petition protesting that decision and appealing to the camp director to offer the camp indefinitely. “Nothing could’ve made me happier,” Fischel says. “That’s how we know children love their summer camp experiences.”
